Miniature paintings are one of the most well-established and respected categories of traditional Persian art, and these four works are exemplary of the lavish detail and rich colours that define this historic genre.

Each of the paintings is of rectangular portrait orientation, housed in a simple wooden frame. The paintings are all of a similar size (see main image which shows the paintings in their correct proportions), and are composed in the traditional manner, with foliate, geometric borders around a central scene. The paintings feature various inscriptions and signatures in Farsi.

The first scene portrays a tiled garden next to an interior, with numerous figures engaged in conversation, playing musical instruments and interacting. The second work represents a small building in a rocky landscape with people sitting together on the grass, as another group of figures look on from above. The third scene illustrates a mountain landscape scene with a group of figures, some on horseback, hunting a lion and other wild animals. The final work, set in a fenced and tiled garden with a pagoda, pictures figures interacting in small groups with platters of food and fruit.
